Vumi's Group's story

Pictured above is Vumi, often described as an extremely friendly person. She is 26 years old and, as a group leader, she is representing her group of 15 farmers in Kilolo North District, Tanzania.

Vumi is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again. This means that she is able to have access to quality training and to acquire new farming methods, which is why she decided to join in the first place.

Vumi says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Vumi will use the profits from this season to save more money for the future.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 23 acres. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing solar lights so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 7 solar lights.

In this group: Vumi, Jully, Elida, Esau, Asha, Enae, Mariamu, Nuru, Anyesi, Zamda, Veronika, Lusiana, Willy, Godi, Neema

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
